Small bodied semi hollow red Jazzuar

Sorry for the shoddy 'shop job. Here's what specs I had in mind:

Rickenbacker style 'f' hole
Smaller body
JM pickups with chrome covers
Silver foil behind the bridge

Would love to get this done someday. It'd take an obscene amount of money, just for the custom body and chrome covers though

Edit: Cleaner body reduction and comparison pic of a normal sized Jag body

Not digging the downsized rear bout. Got ta have that big booty. Why don't you try using the regular body shape but scaled down a bit? ;)

Other than that it looks great, rick f-holes always look right and of all the red colours transparent is definitely my 1# choice (though a little darker wouldn't hurt).

If you don't need the two circuits, you could use the upper switch for turning the behind-the-bridge-PU on and off. Looks great, by the way, but I would also downsize the body not by cutting it but simply scale it down a bit.

How's this? Top one has smaller body and a slight change to the pickguard. Image

That does look a bit better.

If I ever get to getting this built I would likely not want to go through the custom pickguard route though. It's one thing to get a normal Jag pickguard routed for JM pickups, getting a pickguard with a completely different shape sounds like a massive pain in the ass

It's a silly thing to worry about though I guess, seeing as that this is all completely fantasy anyway. I have no woodworking skills and I'd have to get the body built by somebody else, don't know if I'd able to justify the price in getting all these custom parts irl
